Happy New Year 2011

For the first time in years I slept threw the hoopla of the midnight ball drop. I didn't even hear the pots and pans and fire works that frequent our own redneck speckled neighborhood. The kids slept. The Dog. The Cat.

I never make New Years resolutions. This year I feel compelled to commit to a few things, however, so this year I will:

Cook more using free range and organic. I realize this eliminates everything from the grocery store...

And fast food establishments:

Therefore I will eat less.
Which is a good thing.

I will drink more water.
Even if I pee more.
Which I will.

Play more.

Sing More.

Garden more.

I will take life less seriously focusing on what's important not what is annoyingly consuming.

Pursue art.

Get my eyebrows waxed at our local Vietnamese establishment


Ignore the small stuff

Because it's always the small stuff that sucks the life out of you.

I imagine this will keep me busy in 2011 along with the job, the kids, the animals, cooking, cleaning....yawn.

Is it over yet?

I LOVED the saying in the first green picture--You are the author of your own life. Awesome start to the year.

Sounds like you have wonderful intentions--and that's a good thing. Gotta want something to do it.

Thanks for your comment on the rufous hummingbirds at Hill Country Mysteries. I didn't even think about the arrival as a teenaged wandering. You're right.

Happy New Year to you too! I hope no one breakfarts in your poop pool this year.

Oh, I love all of these. I think my favorite is the Up 2 You restaurant, though.

Happy New Year to you as well!

Happy New Year Girlfriend!


Island Rider: LOL! The irony is, however, that the kids are always breakfarting in the poop up pool.

Elizabeth: My favorite Vietnamese restaurant has a menu similar to the Up 2 U sign. It's hard to order when you're laughing.

Kathleen: I want this shirt but I'm still not sure what a Labrador Retriever has to do with any of it :)

Dani: To you as well! Look forward to gazing at your beautiful photos in 2011 and gaining inspiration from the garden!
